“Vexilla Regis Prodeunt Inferni”
(Onslaught)
I’ve had this one for some time now but haven’t gotten round to reviewing until now. Don’t know why I’ve procrastinated. Just from seeing the promo material I got a pretty great vibe about this album. If this doesn’t turn out to be a total blast’n’thrash I’ll be mightily disappointed. There are albums that are harder to get to than others. I’ve had this one on my computer for a long time now but never really gotten round to listen to and review it until now. Which in hindsight might have been a mistake. This is the kind of black metal that I kind of have come to expect from a Brazilian or Portuguese band. Totally blasphemic and anti-Christian vehemence spewed forth in 9 chapters. When I listen to this I get flashbacks to Colombian bands from the 90s that played a huge role in my life back then. Not so much musically as spiritually. Musically this is more along the lines of a more controlled Marduk or Funeral Mist. I don’t know why it took me so long to check this out. I missed out on a good black metal album that perhaps due to a limited edition might be sold out by now. Anders Ekdahl
